Today Netflix released a brand new trailer for their upcoming new film Bright. We get more of an insight into the alternate world that David Ayer has created for us, but we also get a larger sense of the racial divide that will be in play.
More of a focus is placed on Ward and the orc character Jacoby, the first orc police officer ever for the LAPD. When we see orcs in the trailer, they are generally considered lower class. I’m sure you can fill in the blanks going from there.
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
Fresh off his work on Suicide Squad, David Ayer is directing Bright. The Netflix original film stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi.
